The University of South Carolina provides students the expertise and support they
need to become successful entrepreneurs. We believe our students are creating technologies
that will improve our communities. They just need help turning those innovations into
successful products and companies.
Fostering Innovations and Entrepreneurship
Technology innovation coupled with entrepreneurship can sustain our national economic
revival. The three major stakeholders - government, industry, and academia - are implementing
major initiatives to support entrepreneurship. Federal funding agencies are emphasizing
translational research. Private industry is developing partnership strategies to effectively
access scientific discoveries. And, academic institutions are taking steps to create
entrepreneurial ecology, equip students with business skills, and promote research
interactions between faculty and the private sector.
The University of South Carolina spearheads a number of initiatives to foster the
innovation potential of university research.
